      Tools for Teachers

      • Grants allow educators to seed new ideas and approaches to teaching and learning that support creativity. These ideas demonstrate a widespread impact across students in the classroom and throughout the district.

        Through the Foundation, thousands of grants have been awarded to elementary, middle school, junior high and high school staff for innovative programs in all core curriculum areas; music, physical education, special education and counseling.

        The period for grant applications is not currently open.
